Excellent Tile Drill Bit
16 Oct 2013
By Dono
, Birmingham
"I purchased this Drill Bit to install some new bathroom fittings to newly tiled walls. My concern was that drilling into the tiles would either cause them to crack or the bit would skid on the surface. This drill worked perfectly and did not skid off the desired marked spots and cut a smooth hole through tile and brick with no problem. Highly recommended."

Bosch 6mm diamond tipped drill
21 Apr 2012
By geebs46
, Bracknell
"Bought this yesterday after research into tile drilling technique. This bit did the job wonderfully, didn't need tape, just a punch mark. Took it gently and slowly as per research and each hole took about a minute! Better than a knife thru' butter!"

"It is a
"Diamond-ground, tungsten carbide drill bit "
Which is a big difference from a diamond tipped drill bit.
VERY misleading title"

good but pricey
16 Dec 2012
By chrisg111111

"After 6 holes on floor tiles it was starting to struggle. At triple the price of a basic tile bit that is bad value.
3 cheap tile bits are an easier bet.

tile drill- the craic

"this is an example of having the right tool for the job. The hardest part is starting it off without slipping away from your mark. good trigger control on your variable speed drill is the easy answer. New shower installed and up and running."

Does the job
10 Mar 2012

"Drills faster and cleaner than a standard arrowhead tile bit. Less prone to wandering too.
My only criticism is that it would be more beneficial to have a 1/4" quick change shank to aid quick changes of bits."

NOT FIT FOR PURPOSE!
22 Oct 2013
By DaisyInt
, Hampshire
"DO NOT USE ON PORCELAIN
Bought 3 of the bits to drill 7 holes and managed 1 each - all of them dulled incredibly quickly. One had the spear fall out and one had the spear disintegrate.
It states they are not to be water cooled but they overheat straight away even within the recommended operating rpm.
An expensive lesson... Will be attempting a refund as they were not fit for purpose."

Bosch Expert Diamond Tile Dril

By Halfacre
, Sandhurst
"No good on porcelain tiles, taking ages to drill 6mm hole and still not through, sorry waste of money. Description is misleading as it isn't a diamond drill but diamond ground tungsten carbide.
You need to use a diamond drill on porcelain.

By HandyChris

"Needed to drill 12 holes in porcline tile only managed 1 before you could see the bit was dull and wouldn't even start the next one. Ended up using an arrowhead tile bit for the other 11 holes( dip the tip in cold water every few seconds ) Far quicker and less than half the price."

BOSCH got it wrong
27 Dec 2012
By revvi
, West Midlands
"This is the worst product I have ever purchased.
How Bosch can put their name to this, is unbelievable. I spent 20 Minutes trying to Drill a Hole in a Tile and guess what, all I had was a Dent. Do not waste you money on this. Very disappointed. Buy yourself a Diamond Core Drill
which did the Job perfectly for about the same Cost.
